This is the final version of my cover for MICE, my second book in what has become the Dave Callaghan series, which will be released on October 18, 2013.

I am very happy with the cover of this book, perhaps even more than I was with that of Phantom Lover, the first book in this series, which was released in March of this year (but take a look and be the judge of that.)

This is an example of a character, who after getting its foot in the door refuses to go away. I wrote the first Dave Callaghan story, Accidental Lazarus, back in 2002, and had so much fun writing it that I promised myself to revisit him some day. That didn't happen until 2011, when I wrote Phantom Lover, the title story of the first book in the series. Having fulfilled my promise, I thought that Callaghan would leave me alone; little did I know that giving him life again on paper was the literary equivalent of inviting the vampire in . . .

Dear Ms. Ashton,

Given your position as the EU Foreign Affairs Chief I was expecting you to take action to push the EU to stop the mass murder that has been going on undisturbed in Syria. I have had occasion to address your lack of interest in the ongoing butchering in a previous post, which was primed mostly by your appalling message to the Syrian regime, which said: “No more caviar, fancy shoes or primo cigars for you until the violence stops”. I was therefore encouraged when I read the following headlines in NEWEUROPE: "Ashton calls for immediate Syria action".

But then I read the article.

Ms. Ashton, have you seen the rows of dead children that have been gassed by their president? Or perhaps you are too delicate to watch that footage and simply averted your gaze?

And if you did look into the faces of those dead children, how could you "reiterate your 'strong concerns' about the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria" and say that you are "alarmed" by the continued violence in Syria"?

It's shameless self-promotion time here:

“An Italian Obsession”  will be on sale August 21 through August 27, 2013. Set in the lax atmosphere of middle-class post-war Italy, where sex and drugs are easy to come by, the story follows Roberto, who tries to find his own balance, but a crush he had for Alessandra in elementary school is reignited and the course of his life is changed forever.

It’s the 1970’s, a time of political upheaval driven by disillusioned young people. Roberto is caught up in the times. He makes a new start, but his past catches up with him. Finding himself accused of a crime, he must defend himself even when he isn’t sure he committed it.

Starting August 21st, the book will be priced at $0.99 (down from its regular price of $3.99), so go grab your copy while the grabbing is good.
